    [Blog] A Change In How I Send Out Information
    send out 1-2 blog posts a week (these!), Here’s what I am intending to do for the foreseeable next while: 1 blog post a week (unless I simply must blog again). Getting This Blog In Your Inbox Doesn’t Mean You Get My Newsletter. People will say, “I love that newsletter you wrote about _,” and I’ll think, “well, that was actually on the blog and not the newsletter,” but what I say back in every case is “hey thanks!” THIS IS MY BLOG and not my newsletter. I’m sorry about that. Will that be better?

    [Blog] Social media predicts #SB47
    While I have my gut pick, I am not going to use that in my prediction for the game on this blog. In what started as a journey for the NFL’s 32 teams has been whittled down for two – the Ravens and the 49ers. Each team is looking to keep their undefeated Super Bowl record as they head into this Sunday’s big game. Who do you think will pull out the win? Instead, I will let social media buzz make the selection for me as I have throughout the regular season. This weekend is a 50-50 shot, so click the video below to see who social media picked to win: So what do you think of the pick?

    [Blog] Gin and Topics: The Universe Is Upside Down
    Todd Defren explores measuring our efforts in this blog post. I swear the universe is upside down this week. And, as I was telling Joey Strawn , that’s not a good thing! Never mind the completely psychotic week I’ve had, there have been some crazy happenings. First, major filings for bankruptcies – Borders , Giordano’s , and the restaurant that used to bear Walter Payton’s name. Then the Red Cross had a stray tweet (that was handled extraordinarily well). Seriously. It’s a full moon and the universe is upside down. Those are below. It’s here!

    [Blog] The Digital PR Agency
    Write compelling online content that sparks conversations about the brand – for websites, blogs and newsrooms. Over the next two weeks I’ll be expanding on each of these points in a series of blog posts. 'Thirteen years ago when I urged PR agencies to start learning digital skills I ran into a hefty dose of skepticism. Seven years ago when we launched Social Media Club very few PR agencies were interested.  Even three years ago it was a hard sell.  Now almost  every PR agency claims that they are up to speed and able to deliver digital PR and social media.

    [Blog] Control. That Old Thing
    They don't need customer reviews on their websites, they don't have to Blog and they certainly don't have to be active on Twitter , Facebook or YouTube. Can brands be in control of their message? About a week after everyone got their hands on the seminal new media book, The Cluetrain Manifesto by Rick Levine , Christopher Locke , Doc Searls and David Weinberger in 1999 (yes, that's almost twelve years ago), a new meme starting bursting out of the Intertubes and into the boardrooms of companies (small, medium and large) across the globe. The war to control the message had been lost.
